Even in shoppers? It says $399.99 in this week's 20X flyer. Wondering if they actually update the price when I go there tomorrow :rolleyes:

The price drop was just announced/launched today and their flyer was probably already being printed by the time Nintendo announced the price drop

Canadian dollar is dropping though? unless Switch is getting a North American/worldwide price cut?

We come here looking for deals. We use the savings on the things we buy to justify buying more things, thus filling our homes with tons of unnecessary consumer products. Such is the key to happiness.

Nintendo prices separately in Canada and the US. Check the prices on the next eShop sale for example and you'll see the Canada/US prices don't line up with the exchange rate, typically in our favor.

I’m new to the switch. Games seem expensive. The console didn’t come with a game. Any suggestions to get started? Also, what’s the best place to buy games? Any discounts?

I agree, got one for the kids for their birthday. Only to be shocked by the pricing Nintendo has placed. $80 games? $100 controller? I got Mario Kart for them during the EB games 50% deal if you got a Switch. Other than that, I'll probably just shop Kijiji for used games. They should not be priced the same as PS4/Xbox games. Good thing is the games they play doesn't require a 2nd joy-con and they like playing Fortnite which was free.

Agree and disagree.

Some first party titles are easily worth the $80. I think they could even get away charging $99 CAD for a title like Zelda or Mario and people would still buy it. On the other hand, crap like 1, 2, Switch should have been included for free, and they should have priced many last-gen games at the $40-50 range.

Definitely look on Kijiji if you're not in a rush to buy a game. There are also a ton of amazing indie games in the $10-$40 range.

I can agree with that comment. To me Mario Kart is worth the $80 as we would play it as a household, but for now its the 2 of them (trying to avoid that $100 controller) lol

I grabbed my Switch during a 20x PCO points event and used the points towards a second joy-con :) Also picked up a pro controller but I don't even use it that often. Are you thinking pro controller or another joycon?

Joycon, kids aren't really into games that would be of benefit from a Pro.
